General Area of Research
Behavioral and neuropharmacological effects of psychoactive drugs in humans
We are interested in investigating the behavioral and neuropharmacological effects of psychoactive drugs in human research participants. A major focus of this laboratory-based research is to understand factors that mediate drug self administration behavior and to develop effective treatments. More recently, we have made attempts to translate our lab-based knowledge into more humane drug policies.
